Genealogy Museums

Emigration was endemic in Mayo for centuries. The absence of investment in industry meant that young people had to emigrate to seek work. Emigrants sometimes had to cope with an imperfect use of English and consequent literacy problems as well as adjusting to a completely alien life. Genealogy/Family Research Centres have been the source of bringing family members together after many years, thus bringing great happiness into the lives of both parties.
